These locally-manufactured vehicles were built between 1954 and 1965, based on pre-WWII designs. Quite popular among tram enthusiasts around the world, BKV recently celebrated its 50 years of service with an elaborate "UV Day" parade. Usually runs in pairs, or pairs with a central trailer car (some of which were built in 1939). The ancient UV vehicles had no heating installed and were phased out in 2008. The idea that UV stands for Új villamos (new tram) is a widespread urban legend.
